The panda seems to catch his attention.
Easy words to pick up. Words are repeated throughout.
Would be nice if spelled out some of the other words and not just the object they are focused on.
My sons sings some Japanese children songs he learns from school and that's what is missing from this. No singing.
Other than that, its a great DVD.
My only criticisms are
1) The DVDs mix expressions with vocabulary, and if you do not speak Japanese, it can be confusing to which action the expression refers. You can put the DVD on subtitles, but to me this serves no purpose - my son does not yet read, and he is relying on the DVD to teach him. He will not learn anything from the subtitles, so they work more as a parental guide for those parents who do not speak Japanese. This only happens once or twice, however, in general the examples are clear.
2) The DVDs provide the Romanization of the Japanese words, but do not write the words in kana. This strikes me as a missed opportunity. My son is watching the DVD to learn, and so having the words appear in hiragana or kanji would be a nice additional lesson.
Overall, though, I am very pleased. My son frequently requests "Panda!" and is so enthusiastic while watching that I have to highly recommend these.
